Finding information for your report

This guide provides some resources and other information that will help you find different types of information you may need to complete your final report. This page has direct links to databases and resources you may find useful. The other pages on this guide contain information to help you locate things such as journal articles, GIS and mapping information, government and policy information, and industry research.

For a full listing of all the different databases and resources the Libraries subscribe to, check out the Databases A-Z list.

Don't hesitate to reach out to me, your subject librarian, if you get stuck or have questions that aren't answered in this guide. Happy searching!

Best bets for finding research

Looking for journal articles? The databases listed below are some recommended options for tracking down mostly articles. If you need a refresher on how to best use them, contact me!

Get to Full Text with Find It!

Most literature indexes do not have the actual journal articles included within them.  Instead, these indexes just contain information about the article, e.g. titles, authors, abstract.

When you find an article of interest in an index, click the "Find It" button by that entry to get to the full text.  If we have a subscription, "Find It" will provide a link to the journal article. (Or if we have the print, it will provide a link to the catalog with the location and call number.)

Find It button

(A few databases, like Academic Search Complete, include full text for some articles. These databases may allow you to search only for articles available in full text, but be aware that you are only searching a small portion of the articles we actually subscribe to.)

My appointment scheduler is open for you to meet with me virtually. The default platform I use is Zoom, but if you prefer Google Meet or WebEx, that's not a problem at all.
